Both!: Got an excellent DIY dental care kit, but often refer to that Super Glue Gel, to block the leaking fissures: My, how they wear out over time. Part dentured, part worn, part metal capped. An interesting Gob, have I, in more ways than one.

Other. I have electric in one bathroom, manual in the other. So it depends which bathroom I stumble into, bleary eyed, in the morning.

Ah ha! So I'm not the only one that gets a fizzy nose with leccy toothbrushes!

For some reason, my breath doesn't feel as fresh with the leccy brush, manual all the way.

Re: Manual or ...

just bought a new electric one (well rechargable battery one) and it is very good - I like that 'been to the dentist and he cleaned my teeth' feeling after using it

Re: Manual or ...

I seem to be able to get my teeth much much cleaner with an electric brush So I've been using one for nearly 20 years now. Wouldn't want to go back to manual now

Re: Manual or ...

I've got an electric one..... but......

I still have to control it manually

Does everybody else just switch the brush on and it jumps into their mouth

or am I just being pedantic

Electric, but it eats batteries. Might get a rechargeable.

Manual.

I always thought electric tooth brushes
were invented for women who were to
shy to purchase an "adult toy".

Never tried a leccy brush in all my nearly 43 years.
No particular reason.
